Surfing the Unsurfable! How we surfed possibly the biggest wave ever at Nazare

On February 24. 2024, my team and I surfed the unsurfable. After years of training and developing Mission Wave Alpha, we rode the biggest waves of my life, and together with my team and partners we defined what’s possible.

I am Sebastian Steudtner, Big Wave Explorer and Guinness World Record holder, together with my team and partners, I went on a mission to define whats possible riding the biggest waves in the world. Mission Wave Alpha was created three years ago to level up the sport of big wave surfing. This meant to develop the Nazare safety system, understanding the energy of waves, develop a new surfboard concept to match the speed of the waves, just to name a few of the key pillars of the project. After many ups and downs on February 24. 2024 when the biggest and most challenging waves in years rolled into Nazare, we finally had the opportunity to see what is possible. This is the result!

Back To The Roots

Written by Alessandro Piu, expert surfer and traveler, and shot by Gianluca Fortunato, cameramen and director of the photography.
Back to the Roots is a journey around the beautiful Island of Sardinia, visiting the incredible places of this land and discovering the great values of its culture.
 
Surfing is the key, a tramit that makes this great adventure begin.
Sardinia Island is the protagonist of the documentary, a land that still preserves its own culture characterized by a strong respect for its deep roots.

An Island with its beauty and its waves that you did not expect to find right in the middle of the Mediterranean sea.
A land full of breathtaking and unspoiled landscapes that with its strategic position for the maritime exchanges in the past and with its ancestors has got an important role in the old history.
 
This journey, made by Alessandro through his homeland, is characterized by the respect for the sea, the love for mother nature, the friendship and the strong desire to meet finally his own roots.
Surfing in Sardinia is a strong reality, with many pioneers of the Mediterranean Surfing living in there, with a new generation of surfers growing day by day and 220 days of surfable waves during the year.
 
Through this Surf Documentary, there is the rediscovery of the values of surfing.
The friendship, the respect for the sea and the love for mother nature are probably some of the strongest reasons why we are all constantly pushed to jump in the water and ride the waves of the Ocean.

Back to the Roots wants to bring back the lost values to the nowadays, showing what surfing really means.

Back to the Roots is a metaphor of life.

April | About Three Feet part I

The title’s nod to Sterling Spencer aside, there’s a playful irony in how every report seems to echo the refrain of “3 feet,” regardless of the actual wave size. Whether it’s a towering 3 feet overhead or a playful 3 feet chest-high, the consistency of the measurement becomes a humorous constant.

This recent swell proved to be an exhilarating ride. The relentless rips churned up the beachie, discouraging all but the bravest from testing the waters. Over at the point break, the peaks sprawled wide, offering a lineup that shifted unpredictably. Even the usually reliable spots were no sanctuary, as double overhead sets caught even the seasoned locals off guard.

Adding to the challenge, the offshore winds lent a rough texture to the waves’ faces. What ensued was a bumpy, tumble-filled journey for surfers daring to take on the break.

This will be a rare 2-parter with the next episode coming soon
